Default Anyone use rollout for the X-Ray Fk04?

I was just wondering if anyone used a rollout for the fk04? I have been using the new Cobalt stock motor and I think I am WAYYY undergeared. I tried different pinions and spurs and the motor keeps coming off cool.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Rollout is tough to find out see gearchart.com and goto the gearchart creator and try it out.

What tires (compound & diameter size), track surface & spur/pinion combos already used?

You have to gear it by how it behaves on the track and not by temperature. This motor likes to stay cool ~120-130 degrees even if slightly over-geared.
